Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I was recently hosted by the Stonnington Russian Seniors Group at the Horace Petty public housing estate in South Yarra. The Prahran electorate has a strong Russian community, many members of which migrated to Australia during the 1970s and in the years after. We shared a meal and discussed a number of issues regarding the estate, including improving support programs, security doors and maintenance. We also spoke about the need for renovations and problems regarding heat during summer months. Thank you to the president, Klaudiya Karp, for the invitation and congratulations on reforming the Stonnington Russian Seniors Group. I look forward to working with the group to address its needs in our community
